drag rtsub - harshness, sternness, brutality, ruthlessness [RY]
Man. So I’m in the bus/train station right now. As usual, greyhound overloaded the bus, which is always a bummer, but is kinda the norm for greyhound. But I am overhearing a chorus of “stern white ppl voices” as they all attempt to call the Greyhound corporate office at once and it is making me laaaaagh. My dad does it a lot and I’ve just never been able to take it seriously.
We use the phrase “hard as a rock” and others commonly. It represents hardness, solid, dependable, strong but also sternness and unapproachability. But rocks are rarely completely solid and hard. Some are more pliable. And most have cracks and indentations. Interesting holes. The more you look the more you see. And it is the same with people. Some people because they are seen as solid and dependable, are rarely closely observed. We should look at all. Look at people. Look closely. Like rocks you can start seeing more. And sometimes they reveal facets only you can see.
Bert Stern is an American photographer who was influenced at a very young age by Irivng Penn and he went onto photograph Penn as well as many other celebrities. He is a commercial photographer and was given his first assignment in 1955 to do an ad campaign for Smirnoff vodka for the American public. H e was best known for his portraits of Marylin Monroe.
I really like these images as it shows the characters and personality of these people. Elizabeth Taylor is dressed as Cleopatra in the second picture and you are able to get a sense of elegance and importance as Cleopatra was such a prominent person in history. The image last image of Audrey Hepburn modelling for a collection in vogue has a slight playful mood as she is peeking over the top of the bow which gives the impression she is fun and carefree.
We all joke bout how our parents traumatised us by not dealing with their own issues but it’s only this year that I realised how much I have mommy issues.

perle der lust
versteckt, unter dünner haut
gerahmt, von wunderschönen lippen
die zu küssen
uns in andere welten katapultiert
meine zunge sucht dich beharlich
und wenn sie dich erst hat
holt sie dir die sterne vom himmel
bis du explodierst
deine säfte fließen
erst dann, lass ich von dir ab
dann bist du bereit
und nimmst mich dankbar auf
why’s my mom…. Like This anyways
(part 1) code lyoko has been one of my absolute favourite shows as a child. i was literally obsessed with it! and now it’s on netflix, and i couldn’t be happier!!
i tried to imagine the characters as young adults in today’s world. and try to draw them in my style, and thinking about a “what happened since the end of the show?” (i might have been influenced by the fact that yumi and ulrich have been my very first otp, but ok).
+ i put zodiac signs! but i’m not an expert. i mean, i’ve been reading about and studying astrology for a couple of years now, but i’m still soo behind! so i might be totally wrong here!

Alex didn’t know it yet but Darlington was a demon. At this time, too. So that might’ve been real, it was a dream for her but he was actually there in her dream. JSDHNDJD WILL HE REMEMBER IT WHEN HE COMES BACK IN THE NEXT BOOK-
